Although SS is a separate line on my paycheck statement...

I look at SS as income tax...it helps me to swallow the bitter pill. I paid over $6000 in SS taxes last year and my employer matched (per the law). I honestly expect to get nothing...or very little back. Social Security is Socialism. It is the largest social program (measured in US dollars) in the entire world! I'm 40 and I'd opt out of SS if they let me...and I wouldn't ask for a dime back. Sad to say this...but Rick Perry was right...it is a ponzi scheme.
